Tips to Positively Use Your Time During Coronavirus Isolation

Hello dear friends,

Many of us are in difficult times with the current situation with coronavirus. My heart and my love goes out to all of you. I am here trying  to be of service, from isolation in France.

This is a time when we can align our actions with our beliefs and begin to live the lives that we truly desire and yearn for. Today, I wanted to share my suggestions of how you can use this time wisely to not just make it through this situation but actually come out if it in a better spot. Imagine after this passes being able to look back at this time as the catalyst that launched you forward.

Fast Food on the Streets

You’d be surprised at how much food is growing freely all around us. We simply have to open our eyes and look at the world through a new lens. Yes, the following video, Fast Food on the Streets, is filmed in Orlando, Florida, but I’ve traveled to 49 states and 6 continents and can say that food is growing all over! I have foraged from from the Northern colder climates of the Great Lakes region in both the Canada and the United States down to the tip of Florida, from the Atlantic coastal states to the Pacific Ocean of California and deserts and prairies in between. Not to mention countries around the world.

Rob Greenfield’s Guide to Gardening for Beginners in Orlando, Florida

In December 2017, I moved to Orlando, Florida to set out on my next project- to grow and forage 100% of my food for an entire year. I had never grown any food in Florida, and in reality, had not grown much food in my life. I had a few small raised beds when I lived in San Diego where I grew some veggies, but it wasn’t much food, and I didn’t put too much effort into it. So going from that to producing 100% of my food would be no small feat. And my plan was to start the project just six months after arriving in Florida. That meant I had to learn A LOT about growing in Florida immediately and get growing right away.

How I built my tiny house for under $1,500 with nearly 100% repurposed materials and near zero waste

How I built my tiny house for under $1,500 using nearly 100% repurposed materials while creating only 30 pounds of trash.

The tiny house movement has caught on like a wildfire over the last decade, and there’s a lot of positivity coming out if it. I’m very excited about tiny houses and see them as a very useful tool in working towards a more sustainable and just world. I lived in a 50 sq. ft. tiny house in San Diego in 2015-2016. I’ve produced videos about tiny houses to spread the movement through my social media. I’ve visited tiny houses around the United States and in a few countries, and I have even been to a tiny house festival. I’ve made friends with the creators of some of the biggest tiny house pages. Now, I’ve built my first tiny house. Needless to say, I really love tiny houses and am very excited about them. And I’ve become fairly knowledgeable on them.
